A bit of background on why this FUNdraiser is so very important for us to have. Phil has been a very integral part of our Meetup group for a very long time and has worked tirelessly along with the other organizers to make our group the success that it is today. So in his time of need, we wanted to help him to get back on his feet.
On August 22nd Phil experienced the most catastrophic loss of his life ... a fire destroyed his business located at 201 west 4th Street in Wilmington. The loss was not just his families 105 year old business, Gross Lighting Center but his home as well, as he lived above the store. Phil is slowly being allowed to retrieve some of his personal items from the building and the demolition on his former store/apartment is also now going smoothly after the City of Wilmington released the building from the Fire Marshals office.
He's coping ok under the circumstances. We have been really happy to see him attend some of our activities and that he has found a small affordable house to rent in Old New Castle. Unfortunately, he has not found work even after submitting many many applications. If you happen to know anyone that is hiring, please let anyone of us know the contact information for this potential job.
The demolition on his former store/apartment is now going smoothly after the City of Wilmington released the building from the Fire Marshals office. We have put together a page on a fundraising site to raise funds to get him back up and running and to help cover the mounting expenses that he has incurred by the devastating fire. No contribution is too small when it comes from the heart, anything is greatly appreciated. You can access the page to contribute by clicking this link http://www.gofundme.com/PhilGross and you can share it by going to the page and then PRESS SHARE the page. Thank you in advance for your continued support and help that you are sharing towards Phil.
